I think you want to change the server operating system to windows XP or Vista. Is that it? If so yes you can. But there are things you need to do before proceeding. Here they are:

    \015\012
  1. Back up your data
  2. \015\012
  3. Make sure that you have the drivers of your third party device drivers (i.e. NIC, VGA, Sound Card etc...). check if your drivers are compatible with your new operating system selection. Otherwise download them from the manufacturer's site.
  4. \015\012
  5. Prepare a bootable installation cd of the Operating System (OS) of your choice. make sure you have the serial numbers ready as well.
when done doing this follow these steps
\015\012
    \015\012
  1. Boot your PC. At the manufacturers logo page press F12 (commonly it is F12 but some computer models use F11, check it out on the logo page) to select the boot device.
  2. \015\012
  3. Insert the OS installation cd/ dvd into your drive.
  4. \015\012
  5. Select the CD/ DVD drive to boot from
  6. \015\012
  7. if you are installing a Windows OS, when the "Press any key..." message is displayed just press a key on your keyboard.
  8. \015\012
  9. After this check out this support page for installation detail of the OS of your choice
